For more than three decades, jellybean has been proud to support Plan International, a global children’s charity where each employee over that period has had a child sponsored for them in their name – 100 in total.

On Sunday 2nd April 2023, Plan International is launching its Chance to Grow Appeal, with the aim to raise £1million to fund three projects to support children in learning and ensure they grow up healthy and educated.

During a 36-hour crowd funder which begins at 10am Sunday 2nd April and ends 10pm on Monday 3rd April 2023, every £1 donated will unlock another £1 donation – doubling the impact of your support!

Plan International is committed to children and the equality of girls – this crucial fundraiser will help young people all over the world.

  • In Bangladesh 1 in 3 girls become pregnant while still a child themselves (UNDP 2016)
  • 10Million children are out of school in Nigeria, including 6Million girls (UNICEF 2020)
  • Nigeria has the 2nd highest rates of maternal and child mortality in the world (WHO/UNICEF 2019)

As a Plan International charity champion, our CEO and founder Fiona Rickard, with jellybean, are raising funds to support the charity’s work. If you would like to donate please visit her fundraising page

Every penny will make a difference and help ensure thousands of children in Bangladesh and Nigeria have access to education and health support.

  • £ 53 is enough to hold 2 Sports Days to raise awareness about gender equality and nutrition in Bangladesh
  • £ 99 is enough to provide rehydration salts for 68 children for a year, helping them recover from illness in Nigeria
  • £ 499 is enough to provide educational kits to 147 children who have been displaced from their homes in Nigeria
  • £ 1,006 is enough to maintain 34 School Gardens for a year to grow food and teach gardening skills for home in Bangladesh
  • £ 5,005 is enough to set up and equip teenage clubs in 68 schools for pupils to learn about their health and rights in Bangladesh
  • £ 9,945 could provide 246 adolescent girls with menstrual health kits so they can manage their periods in Nigeria
  • £ 24,990 is enough to construct and supply Learning Spaces, giving children out of education a place to learn in Nigeria
